also known as Katie Arthurs
Katie Arthurs is a domestic relations attorney who counsels clients through difficult family affairs. Her practice is concentrated on several areas of law impacting families, including divorce, dissolution of marriage, child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, and the division of marital estates. Katie represents both husbands and wives and keeps a “big picture” perspective when managing a variety of complex cases. She has proficiency in both litigation and alternative dispute resolution. She negotiates mutually satisfactory settlements and, if necessary, litigates cases through the domestic relations court.
Kaite has completed training in Collaborative Law. A collaborative divorce is when two spouses (and their lawyers) agree to work together in four-way settlement conferences to resolve their case through negotiations, in order to minimize the negative economic, social, and emotional consequences of litigation. She has also completed training in mediation.
Katie works efficiently with clients to find creative solutions to all family law matters.
Katie has experience:
Katie has experience in handling issues concerning special needs children. She evaluates and addresses the continuation of child support and visitation after a child’s emancipation based upon physical and mental disabilities. Katie collaborates with other McCarthy Lebit attorneys to address other special needs issues such as estate planning, trusts, guardianships, and education planning (such as IEPs and 504 Plans).
Katie’s practice also entails the crafting of prenuptial agreements to protect premarital assets, business interests, and real estate in the event of divorce and/or death. She works strategically with clients to facilitate sensitive discussions between engaged parties.
In the unfortunate event of domestic violence, Katie has advocated on behalf of both petitioners and respondents, and has experience securing the modification of Civil Protection Orders. She collaborates with other McCarthy Lebit attorneys in the event of criminal action.
